As part of the 15-year celebration of the 1998 San Diego Padres World Series team, 12 former Padres players and their family members visited the guided-missile destroyer USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG 108) last Friday while pierside at Naval Base San Diego.

The former Major League Baseball players were given a rare glimpse into life onboard an active-duty Navy ship. Crewmembers led the group on a tour of the ship, including the combat information center, crew’s mess, wardroom, flight deck and pilothouse.

While onboard, the celebrity athletes signed autographs for and interacted with Sailors one on one.

Players in attendance included:
Andy Ashby
Brian Boehringer
Kevin Brown
Ben Davis
Chris Gomez
Joey Hamilton
Sterling Hitchcock
Jim Leyritz
Mark Merila
Stan Spencer
Greg Vaughn
Donne Wall
